One in three Americans captured by the Japanese in WWII died in captivity. This is the gripping story of one who survived. After enlisting in the Army Air Corps, sometime juvenile delinquent and Olympic runner Louis Zamperini's odyssey takes a decidedly grim turn when the B-24 on which he serves as a bombadier crashes in the Pacific. After drifting for 47 days, he is picked up by the Japanese. And the story turns hellish. For two and a half years he  endures the sadistic torture of his guards, humiliation, starvation, medical experiments, slave labor and disease. Effectively saved by the dropping of the atomic bombs, re-entry brings no relief to the devastation created by the POW experience. Until, that is, he hears the message of an unknown evangelist Billie Graham. The tale is horrific, inspiring and captivating. Check Our Catalog
